INDIE ROCK - The Excuses + Paul The Kid + Johnnys Gun + The Fervour

Only £5 OTD

The Excuses formed in 2017 by childhood friends, with the intention of bringing together a lifetime of musical ideas. Now in their third year, the band plays an eclectic concoction of upbeat, melodic rock, pop and funk you won't be able to stop yourself dancing to! With a mix of quirky takes on well-known bangers and some original storytelling, they love to take to the stage and try their very best not to disappoint.

Paul The Kid currently lives in London Town.

High energy to laid back tunes, the frontman and songwriter of Kiwi ska//rap outfit Night Gaunts has decided to set out and explore a land of new offbeat rhythms. A land where house meets ska, where reggae meets space and where time stops as your body rocks.

His debut EP’s ‘Swimming Through The Milky Way’ and ‘TWO TONE DEATH WAVE’ were released in November and are avaliable digitally everywhere:

Paul Go is the musical project of singer songwriter Paul G. Oliver, originally from Newcastle upon Tyne, now based in London.

Paul’s music incorporates a wide range of musical influences including folk, post-punk, psychedelic, free improvisation and world music. His music often utilises acoustic instruments in a ‘folk style’ with other electronic sounds, samples and beats. Despite several years of writing, recording and performing music, Paul released his first single Fox in the Garden in 2016 on his label Ganbei Records.

Over the last few years, Paul has performed his music all over the world, including the UK, Europe, USA and China. Notably he has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, in Scotland, and South-by-South-West Festival in Austin, Texas, USA.

Paul is currently recording his next single – with a four-piece band – which will be released on Ganbei Records in July.

The New Nostalgia + ABQ + Paper Anthem + I See Shapes

Here comes the weekend (well nearly!) £5 OTD

The New Nostalgia - Post Punk Revival / Brit Rock


ABQ are an Indie Rock four piece hailing from Belfast but currently based in London. They are fronted by Paul Shevlin, winner of the BPI / BRIT sponsored ‘Next Brit Thing’ who provides a distinctive and memorable vocal for this impassioned young band. 

Following their well-received debut single ‘Takes So Long’ in 2018 they have recently been focused on building a catalogue of anthemic singles to be released throughout in 2019. They have worked with a number of high profile producers and writers including Ben Langmaid (La Roux), Alex Davies (Elliot / Minor Frances / Kodaline) and Ben Mark (Mark Owen / Take That) amongst others. 

Their highly anticipated single, ‘Edge of the Earth’ was released on 22nd February 2019 on Arnold/Republic of Music.

‘Edge of the Earth’ is a sing-a-long anthem laden with distinctive distorted bass lines, sparkling guitars and driving drums. It was produced in Stockholm by Mats Valentin (Carpark North / Tiggs Da Author).

Paper Anthem

Joseph Hitchcock has always been inspired in short, furious bursts, so when what he claims was a haunted piano gave him twenty-three impassioned songs, he didn't stop to ask too many questions. The sole songwriting force behind the geographically-confused indie-rock project says that the first twelve songs landed on his 2015 debut—aptly titled By Ghosts—but the remaining eleven sat in agonizing slumber until they were finally birthed in June 2019.

"I always know very early on which songs go where," he explains. "Though all written together, these new tracks felt very unique to a separate journey."

With his new LP entitled To All the Sailors We've Lost, which was recorded on the west coast of the United States before being mixed and mastered in England, Hitchcock seems to have taken the oceanic theme quite literally. "I wanted the different perspectives," he says. "I'm obsessed with the effect geography has on musical style. Painting it with the color of California and then giving it a UK finish was something I thought was cool."

Indeed, although the new album was written in Arkansas yet produced in San Francisco while Hitchcock was living in Seattle, it will be released while he is on sabbatical in Eastern Europe.

Hitchcock, the son of a Blues-singer father and a poet mother, has storytelling in his blood. "I view an album as a movie," he says. "I've been making YouTube shorts of questionable quality for over a decade now, and that bleeds into everything I do." He thinks of songs as scenes in a larger tapestry, though they're never written that way. "I just try to fit the songs I come up with together as cohesively as possible."

After four years of work he is understandably eager to show off what he's been perfecting. "I just hope it resonates. It took so long to get right."

I See Shapes are a five piece band based in Guildford with a simple goal - to write hook laden alt-pop.

Big guitars, pulsating keys, infectious beats, and sing along choruses, I See Shapes have been likened to the Foals and The 1975. Emerging from months of experimentation in the studio, the band are set to release their debut EP in May 2019 followed later in the year by the debut album “Relativism”, with live shows in support around the UK.

Yay! Friday is here! Live music, great beer, great times! Only £5 entrance OTD

The Poes were started with Will and Alex writing simple folk music together Over time, and with the addition of synthesizers and drum machines, the sound outgrew folk and went somewhere different. The introduction of Sam on lead vocals and producing carved out a niche in the lo-fi/alt pop sound. Together, the Poes want to capture the feel of old-school pop music, but repackage it with modern musical techniques and flourishes.

ROCK /PROG - Lest We Forget + Maziac + The Blues Stompers + JELLY ROLL DUO + Versa


‘Prog Metal delivered with panache and finesse’ - Dave Gilyeat, BBC Introducing.

'LWF is a melodic progressive metal band with soaring melodies and enough odd rhythms and cool licks to keep the music nerds like myself entertained' - Technical Music Review.

‘If you are playing ‘Zero Won’ in the car, be careful of the accelerator because this song will get your adrenaline pumping. But whatever you do, play it loud. Every time’ - Down The Front Media.

JH Norris // Lead Vocals, Bass Guitar

Harry Lingard-Bright // Lead Guitar

Paul Heavey // Guitar, Vocals

Dec Doran // Drums

Combining intricate riffs and furious rhythms with anthemic, cascading vocals, LestWeForget’s unique brand of progressive metal synthesises those two most disparate of things - the complex and the catchy.

The band’s innovative sound derives from juxtaposition. This exists in the dialogue between JH Norris’s vocals and Harry Lingard-Bright’s soaring lead lines, and in the connection between Paul Heavey’s driving guitar riffs and Dec Doran’s fierce percussive cadences.

Praised especially by BBC Introducing’s Dave Gilyeat, LestWeForget’s 2017 release ‘Sweet Serenity’ showcased the band's affinity for a technical riff alongside a melodic, stadium-filling vocal line, and can be listened to on Spotify ( alongside their wider back catalogue.

LestWeForget's brand new single, 'Zero Won', is the most emphatic manifesto of their style to date - it has already garnered a multitude of plaudits through a variety of publications and media.

They have sold out the 02 Academy 2 in Oxford, and have performed at prestigious live venues across the country, including The Fleece in Bristol, which hosted the band for a show in which they were the headlining touring act. 

LestWeForget continue to work as an exciting and inventive force in the UK scene.


Maziac is a progressive metal/alternative rock three-piece based in London who will be releasing their debut album 'Forged' on 5th July 2018. The album was mixed and mastered by Justin Hill – renowned producer and former vocalist of the pioneering progressive metal band SikTh.

Kaspar And The Swamp Dogs

Kaspar grew up in London and moved to Hertfordshire when he was 9. He learned the guitar when he was 11 when a family friend with a serious disability gave one to him on the condition that Kaspar would learn how to play it. 

At the age of 12 he discovered Pride and Joy on Guitar Hero and quickly realised this was the blues. This would send him on a path of education and revelation to the blues as a genre and a life style. 

 Kaspar went to New Orleans to celebrate turning 18 where he performed in B.B. Kings Blues Club (and was discovered by Harold Marcho music producer). Harold invited Kaspar back to the states to record his first single Sailing.

He is now performing with his live band, Kaspar & The Swamp Dogs around St Albans, London and where ever he may be invited to. The band consists of Seb Rejal on bass guitar and drummer Mia Casey.

Melodi Melodi is a singer/songwriter from Hertfordshire now living in South London. She received her name and musical interest from her father, Jerome, who was a singer/songwriter himself.Drawing on many different musical influences, Melodi is creating music that is both honest and current, yet still sparks feelings of nostalgia.Melodi had a great start to the year with her single "So Good" being picked up by Jamz Supernova on Radio 1xtra. Now, with her latest song "Body Language" and more releases in the pipeline she’s set for a promising year.AfroPunk: ''A remarkably soulful voice. Melodi makes music unique in its owns right''Howl & Echoes: ''A vocal tone is so lush with nods to artists like Mary J Blige and Jill Scott.''LAGIOIA LAGIOIA is a Soul/R&B artist from Zurich. Her voice is unmistakable, a powerful R&B alto that cuts like a hot knife. She plays piano and guitar and writes songs with electro influences and wisdom that reveal an old head on young shoulders. With her to the point lyricism and recurrent melodies, she wants to bring her listeners to her own zone of music. Growing up from Switzerland, she honed her craft spinning records by Alicia Keys, Erykah Badu and the sound of her parents listening to 70’s funk. Moving to London in 2018, she has built a following playing live shows across the capital.Maria MarieMaria Marie is an independent female pop artist from Cancún, México. Her music is influenced by Latin pop, Reggaetón, and EDM, which contributes to the element of surprise in her lyrics: the mix of English and Spanish in harmony (Spanglish). At only 21 years of age, Maria Marie has already lived in México, USA, Switzerland, Spain, and currently, London in the UK, which she claims to have shaped her both personally and professionally. Her music has been compared to the likes of Dua Lipa, Sia, and Sofia Reyes , all female artists Maria looks up to, and is humbled by the comparison. The Mexican artist has recently released her first single “Bad Boys”, in which she paints the picture of what it’s like to be attracted to the wrong person, and the internal battle she went through while dealing with her contradicting feelings. LaéliaPowerful and mysterious. Dark and fun. Melancholic and mischievous. Combinations that usually aren’t meant to be perfectly describe Laélia. Born next to the sea, but grown out of the ground, this creature moves fluid like water but vocalises strong as land. An incredible sight of colour, anger and sensuality. She beams synths from the 80s and 90s. Casts hints of Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, Kate Bush and Gwen Stefani. But there are undefinable sounds that she sings that sound like tomorrow. + introducing newcomer, neo-soul singer-songwriter Thandie.Hosted by Alichè — Tickets — £4 online / £8 OTD18+

Lonely Dakota

In January 2016 Luke 'VonDee' Varndell would meet Jackson and a rabble of other musicians in a damp 'would be studio' in the arse end of nowhere to audition for lead vocals. Having prepared lyrics beforehand the band quickly began to meld together, and fan favourite 'Medication' began to take form. VonDee had never fronted a band before, having previously been a solo acoustic act, and felt naked without his own guitar around his neck. However with the support and encouragement of Jackson his confidence, ability and range grew. In a moment that would have made Marty McFly proud, they had both found 'that new sound' they had been looking for.

In April 2016 Lonely Dakota would release their first single 'On The Rise'. Recorded at the Ranch Production House it received local radio success and LD went on to play a string of shows supporting acts such as SOiL, Wilson and Reigning Days. Later the same year they released their second single 'Low Life' via Revolver Records, but continual changes to the line-up saw the momentum dwindle. Due to disagreements and other commitments, the band lost its rhythm section.

Not to be deterred, and wanting to preach their songs to the masses, Jackson and VonDee set about reconstructing and breathing new life into LD.

Terry 'Tez' Jenvey would join the band in the Summer of 2017 providing thunderous bass guitar and giving a new momentum to the band. In November 2018 LD returned to the Ranch Production House, with producer Kurt Fagan, to record their new Southern Rock ballad 'Dead Stories'. This would go on to receive national airplay on Planet Rock's 'The New Rock Show', with Wyatt Wendels.

LD once again began to gather traction on the local scene developing a loyal and growing fan base. In February 2019 Lonely Dakota would become fully formed into the Southern Rock Powerhouse it is today with the addition of Craig 'The Machine' Sepala on drums. Sepala's years of drumming experience and technical playing has helped to push Jackson, VonDee and Tez to play harder than ever before. Leading to live shows laden with 'behind the head' solo's, chest pounding bass, raspy and haunting dual vocals and earth-shattering drums.

In April 2019 LD once again returned to The Ranch and recorded their debut, five track, EP. Featuring forth coming singles 'End of Days' and 'Overdrive'.

Chernobyl Sunshine Club

As featured on The Tom Robinson Show on BBC 6 Music, CinemaScopic indie rock. "The encapsulated sound of an epic car-on-fire outro".

The debut single ‘When Death Was a Boy’ will be released at the beginning of August and available to stream on Spotify and Apple Music.

Laissez Faire are an indie pop band that hope to rekindle the UK’s love for boyish charm and indie tunes. The three young men take their influences from icons of the garage indie scene, most predominantly The Strokes whose lo-fi sound has helped revolutionise the way the band thought about their music production and performance.

Laissez Faire have recently supported the Indoor pets, Redfaces and Jordan Allen and only hope that their love for the indie music scene will show in their particular sound that they want to portray to their listeners.

This unique Mad Max like post apocalyptic metal electropunk band are renowned for their nuclear blast level live performances and take influences from the Misfits by way of Rob Zombie. Their new sound is heavier and more metal than ever before as shown by the lead track 'Bulldoze Everything' from the forthcoming album 'Walk Amongst Rebels' which is garnering incredible reviews.

" This album is nothing short of a masterpiece. Once again, genres have been defied, to create something that, sonically, stands out from absolutely everyone else. Not only that, but the message here is even stronger than before, being massive call that tells us all to wake up to the world around us. It makes the entire experience deeply profound. As I said earlier, the evolution only makes sense, but to just call it that is a massive understatement, it’s more of a revolution. It’s some of the deepest, most poignant material I’ve heard in a long while, and definitely a very strong contender for album of the year.

Final Verdict: A genre-defying revolution that is packed with emotional depth, making it very relatable, and very human. It’s beautifully crafted, and needs to be listened to by everyone."


Hailing from East London, electro-rock-industrial act AlterRed have made a dramatic and impressive impact on a wide variety of audiences with their, energetic and flamboyant live shows. Self medicated madness is their remit. Love, lust, lunacy and loss are their tales to tell. Music to lose your mind to!”

Jan Doyle Band

They weave and wind their own unique path through industrial goth and punk with a spectacularly engaging live show. Never content with repeating a sound they are always adventuring and moving forwards.

"Williams cuts a striking figure on stage with his punk hair and facepaint, Jan Doyle Band manage to combine a number of distinct influences, from goth and industrial and recognises no boundary between stage and audience as shapes are cut to the tunes. The result is as much performance art as it is music performance the crowd fully engaged in this theatre." Paul Browne,

Down From Above

A fusion of bittersweet melodies and menacing guitar riffs, juxtaposed with growling bass lines and underpinned by forceful, hard driving beats. Driven by the urge to be original, forward looking, and true to themselves, the band are bringing their unique melange of heavy soundscapes with trippy dark angelic vocals to the UK rock scene.



Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate and friends in association with London Prog Gigs present a one day festival of progressive music at the Fiddler's Elbow - Camden, London (UK), with profits to be donated to the World Land Trust.

Acts include -

Axiom - prog rock/metal instrumental trio from Birmingham.

Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate - fusing alt/prog-rock and electronic elements with science and science fiction

Peter Malone-Mason
Christopher Ellis


Originally formed by frontman Luke and drummer Rory in October 2017, the duo rehearsed regularly at Satellite Studios in Enfield, jamming out original songs. Finding members however proved to be difficult, until in January 2018 when they met Rafael, who became their guitarist. The three spent months rehearsing and posting ads online in search of a bassist, and by July, Axel responded to an Ad and completed the line up! In January 2019 Rafael left the band to take time to focus on himself and go to college and was replaced by new guitarist Emily!

The 4 of them all have varying taste in music but all have the same vision of sound and style the band can create, looking to make fun catchy music people can have a good time listening to! Taking influence from the likes of DNCE, Paramore and The 1975, Pink Haze combine catchy indie riffs with punchy pop rock chord progressions and ambient synths.

Holloway Star + The Crux (U.S.A) + Drakmah + James Andrews

Holloway Star + The Crux (U.S.A) + Drakmah + James Andrews

7pm doors for this mid-week smasher! Pay only £5 OTD

Holloway Star is a four piece combo formed in north London four years ago as a group of friends mixing funk and disco rhythms within a rock framework. The members have previously released material under various guises. Most notable is the work of keyboards player Guru George who was a founding member of 80’s and 90’s pop act Kissing the Pink who can boast appearances on Top of the pops and 2 top 40 hits. The guitarist, Jude, was signed to Immortal records as part of Cambio. The 90’s band released 2 Eps, one of which was number 1 in the HMV alternative dance charts.  They along with drummer Robbie form the rhythm section for singer Shane Tanner who recently joined the band.

The Crux

"The Crux reach deep into musical history, reinvigorating and reinterpreting these musical traditions for our time and place with colorful lyrics that paint a fable, tell a riddle and leave you wondering how you interpret your own human experience."

- Gina Lopez, Showbams, "The Crux Leave Their Folk-Punk Imprint on SF"

"Doc Watson by way of Joe Strummer."

- Gabe Meline, The North Bay Bohemian, "Barn Loyalists: Interdependent Theatrics and The Crux"


This ensemble was born with the purpose to satisfy our need to explore different musical worlds, whether those are deserted and cold or fertile and filled with life.

We love to combine opposing genres, instruments and ways of thinking and the key is to find a constant and necessary compromise.

Nothing else lies in Drakmah’s core and roots; indeed the foundation itself is due to David and Panda’s will to blend their nature, filled with electronic influences, with the (not necessarily) different ones of Mario and Gian, both closer to a more instrumental tradition.

Each and every new song is a unique opportunity to get to now ourselves better, to experiment and keep growing; there’s no goal or finish line, just another start. That’s our way to reach out to you and guide you into our world.

Fusing indie rock, shoe gaze, folk and electronica, with lyrics concerning the deepest themes of the human condition, James Andrews has made an incredible debut album, entitled The Spirit of Our Time. ‘’I wanted to make a piece of work that would really resonate with people, in these strange times. The world is changing very fast, and it’s important to reflect on this or else we lead the way to trouble’’ says the London based artist.

The record was made in his home studio over a five-year period whilst was living in Berlin, ‘’It wasn’t the easiest process. I’ve been writing songs since I was a teenager, but wanted to approach song writing in a different way. I would programme drums, loop a guitar part, write some words, but then tear down the whole thing and start again from scratch, taking with me only a few ideas from the previous sketch.’’ The constant flux of it’s creation gave room to what is a deeply personal piece of work, as well as speaking universally to us all about the divided and testing nature of living in this modern age, and what we can do to find our place in it.

James Andrews has used aliases throughout his long musical career to promote work, but this will be the first time he will be using his own name. The Spirit of Our Time is out now.

INDIE/ROCK -Albany + The Ba + The Chesterfield Band + Redford + Sukh

INDIE/ROCK -Albany + The Ba + The Chesterfield Band + Redford + Sukh

Saturday Night is here!! 5 x bands for fiver £1 coins! Madness!!


“When a truly great band rolls around, people take notice anyway. Do I get that vibe with Albany? I sure as hell do.”- String Buzz, String Buzz (Oct 25, 2016)

“Even though I am a music lover of varied eclectic influences, bands performing live in bars has never really been included in my list of loves - until I heard Lincoln-based band Albany perform at The Rogue Saint on Friday evening!”

- Chloe West, Louth Leader (Jul 04, 2016)

“Lyrically each track is again, intelligent. They never write about corny subjects or phrase anything in a cheesy manner, instead each song sounds somewhat endearing. Why do I say this? Well each subject is personal to the band and it’s described in a way which is personal to the band. As a listener that makes me feel a connection and allows me to differentiate these guys from others; it gives the group character which again is rare for an independent act. Overall then, I really had a great time listening to this EP. Thus far this month, independent music has swamped the signed stuff in quality. Makes you think as a reviewer what our mainstream really cares about anymore. 20 years ago this group would be in the top flight, cruising through with great music, but unfortunately bands are having to sell out to get their money...”

- The String Buzz, Lead The Way EP Review (Oct 25, 2016)


Formed in 1976, their music has been described as "like a primitive Talking Heads played by people who have never heard Talking Heads."

Nick Jacobs; guitar and vocals: Kev Burrows; bass: Mark Hudson; vocals: Sandy Sanderson; drums: Kevin Rayner; guitar and vocals.

2018 saw The Chesterfield Band hit the road in a big way. Travelling over 15,000km, playing over 100 shows, eating an absolutely ridiculous amount of bacon and egg rolls while meeting a heap of amazing people. Their debut single “Imagining Nothing At All” continues to be featured on Tiger Airway flights around Australia and their single ‘Home’ is receiving airplay on international radio stations.

2019 is shaping up to be even bigger with plans for another Australian tour and a European tour in the works. The band will also be releasing their debut EP “Early Days” in late Feb with 4 new tracks and a whole bag of goodies.

The Chesterfield Band started in the kitchen with Tess and Cam writing and singing together. They decided to enter a competition for local songwriters. They won, and with the money they recorded and released their first single under the band name “My Dad & I”.

6 months and a whole heap of shows later the duo ran into an old friend of Cam’s, Dylan. He was performing in the same music festival with another band. In a spur of moment decision the guys invited Dylan to play drums on a song and that was that, they’d formed a band.

With Dylan on drums ‘My Dad & I’ continued to play shows locally and interstate. Over the next the few months Tess turned 18, and the bond between the band members became more like a family. Everyone agreed that it was time for a name change and to start taking things to the next level. The guys set up a ‘Name the Band’ competition and decided on “The Chesterfield Band”.

Looking to expand their sound even further the band played with some great local bass players and then struck gold with Craig. He brought not only an incredible musicality to the bands sound but fitted perfectly into their unique family vibe.


Polish indie-rockers Redford has announced their arrival with a brand new single, cinematic video clip and a new EP release date. The new track To The Morning is on streaming platforms now, and you can watch the accompanying video below on YouTube. With a brand of intricate and widescreen indie reminiscent of Radiohead and The National, the four-piece will also drop their new EP The World We Live In on 10th May (via Glasstone Records).

Sukh is a Wolverhampton born, Manchester based singer-songwriter and doctor. His roots in music started with his love of film scores, and as a teenager he was thrown in at the deep end when he was comissioned to compose an action movie soundtrack. 

With that completed, he got the song writing bug and during his time at medical school formed several bands and started feverishly working on his solo material, exploring wildly different musical directions, inspired by cinema.

Juicebumps + Fill in the blank + The Devon Worley Band (U.S.A) + Seanie Vaughan

Juicebumps + Fill in the blank + The Devon Worley Band (U.S.A) + Seanie Vaughan

Sunday doesn’t mean the weekends over! Not with this kind of line up! £5 OTD

Juicebumps is a spookwave band from San Francisco, CA.

The Devon Worley Band was forged out of raw talent. Devon’s undeniable ability drew top-tier touring musicians to her side at a very early age. While every other teenage girl was hanging out at the mall snap chatting their boyfriends, Devon’s teenage years were spent paying dues, traveling with her band, and touring relentlessly across the heartland; playing just about every bar, fair and festival in the grain belt.

Now in her early 20’s, Devon Worley and her band have taken the Midwest music scene by storm and are garnering critical acclaim and national attention. Their latest full length album “The Sunrise Resistance” has caught the attention of not only country music fans nationwide, but also Nashville insiders eager to see more of the band’s no-rules writing style.

Riding their own raw edge of country and rock, this band is turning heads and making waves, while bringing a brand new attitude to country music. From their songwriting style to their studio recordings, the girl and her band are forging their own unique path. However, their true love is the stage. Their passion for the live show, the audience and their fans is evident; and their talent undeniable.

Fill In The Blank are a 5 piece Hard Rock and funk band from Angoulême, France. Created from an impromptu jam between long time best friends they have now evolved into a fully fledged project. With influences such as Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Mötley Crüe and Lysistrata. They are no strangers to delivering fully energised live sets of their own songs and creating a wild partying atmosphere.

Seanie Vaughan is a indie rock and folk artist from Connemara, Galway, Ireland. In 2011, Seanie released his debut album “Altered Vision” which reached no.5 in the Irish Indie Album Charts. The album features lyrics with obvious connotations of growing up in rural Ireland. Vaughan spent much of his teenage years perched behind the taps in the family bar in Clifden – perfect training for any prospective songwriter. The lyrics lead towards themes dealing with landscape, growing up, love, politics and alcoholism. There is a definite sense that the album was influenced by folk singers like Bob Dylan. There is a real sense that, through this album, the listener is building a relationship with the artist – getting to know his thoughts and emotions through the lyrics and music. 
In 2015, Seanie released his second album, “Redemption”. At first listen it can seem like a totally new departure for the artist but in many ways it develops on the themes encapsulated in “Altered Vision”. The album leans very much toward the rock genre but the songwriting remains a very strong element as Vaughan struggles with the ideas of the changing face of society on a cultural and political level and the sense of national identity. However, there are also deeply personal elements to the album exploring issues like the loss of love and depression.  In parts it has a darkness to it but there are also contrasting elements of friendship and love. A key to Vaughan's music is that each and every person should be able to relate to it and take something away from it for themselves. It has had high praise from national and international press - Hot Press Magazine, in a six star review compared Vaughan's “Redemption” to The Beatles and PureM heralded the album as 5/5 “not to be missed” and singled Seanie as "Unmissable, Redemption shows Seanie Vaughan is en-route to becoming an integral part of Irish rock".

Seanie has toured his works nationally and internationally, in Britain, France, China and most recently on a tour of House of Blues venues in the U.S. A third album is very much in the pipeline with new material being showcased at each gig.

Aga Olek


I am a violinist, singer, and songwriter from Poland, currently living and working in London.

I run a solo live-looping act as Aga Olek.

My adventure with music started in early childhood. I was learning classical music under the watchful eyes of my teachers. Playing became a big part of me as I was growing and exploring the mysteries of the old and contemporary masterpieces. After graduating from the Music Academy in Katowice I was an orchestra member, chamber musician, and soloist in several formations. I kept searching for the music I’ve heard deep inside me. I was crossing the genres and experimenting, finding new colours in the musical palette.

Finally, I established my own project in 2017.
